PASS AIR BAG OFF indicator lamp

Adjusting Childseat After Fastening

  • After fastening the child restraint system, do not adjust the seat in any direction.

Moving the seat could pull the safety belt against the child restraint, applying increased pressure to the seat, and cause the "PASS AIR BAG OFF" indicator lamp to go off and activate the airbag system.

  • Check the condition of the passenger airbag system shown by the indicator lamp in the overhead operating console.

Activating the automatic locking retractor

  1. If a child restraint system must be fastened to the passenger's seat, adjust the passenger's seat as far away from the airbag as possible.
  2. Position child seat according to the child seat’s manufacturer instructions.
  3. Pull the safety belt retractor completely out. At this point the locking mechanism is activated.
  4. Insert the safety belt tongue into the buckle and make certain that it is properly latched.
    Make no more adjustments to the seat.
  5. Allow the safety belt to retract until it is tight on the child restraint system. You may further tighten the belt by pulling on it to allow more of it to retract.
    Make sure that excessive safety belt forces do not occur by moving the seat with the child seat installed.

Releasing the safety belt

  • Unbuckle the safety belt latch.

Then make certain that the belt has fully retracted. At this point the automatic locking feature will be disengaged.

Seek appropriate advice from your authorized Porsche dealer about the possible installation of a Porsche child restraint system.

LATCH Child Seat System

LATCH child seats are the best option for mounting a child seat in your Porsche. Such LATCH child seats can be installed only using the LATCH system in the rear seats.

Use only child restraint systems with the LATCH system (Lower Anchorage and Tether for Children) recommended by Porsche.

These systems have been tested and adjusted to the interior of your Porsche and the appropriate child weight groups. Other systems have not been tested and could entail an increased risk of injury. You can obtain child seats that are LATCH-compatible at your authorized Porsche dealer.

Always observe the separate installation instructions for your child seat.
